Burning mouth syndrome (BMS)

The main symptom of burning mouth syndrome (BMS) is pain in the mouth that feels like burning, scalding, or tingling. Or, the pain may happen with a feeling of numbness, which comes and goes. Other symptoms include dry mouth or altered taste in the mouth.

BMS is a painful condition. Usually, the tongue is affected but the pain may also be in the lips, the roof of the mouth, or throughout the mouth.

BMS pain can last for months or years. Some people feel constant pain every day. For others, pain increases throughout the day. For many people, the pain is reduced when eating or drinking.

Local anaesthetics

The use of local anaesthetics by injection or by application to mucous membranes to produce local analgesia is discussed in this section.

Local anaesthetic drugs act by causing a reversible block to conduction along nerve fibres. They vary widely in their potency, toxicity, duration of action, stability, solubility in water, and ability to penetrate mucous membranes. These factors determine their application, e.g. topical (surface), infiltration, peripheral nerve block, intravenous regional anaesthesia (Bier’s block), plexus, epidural (extradural), or spinal (intrathecal or subarachnoid) block. Local anaesthetics may also be used for postoperative pain relief, thereby reducing the need for analgesics such as opioids.

Mouthwashes are usually either designed for cosmetic use or therapeutic use. Cosmetic mouthwashes freshen bad breath for short periods of time, but they don’t provide any other dental benefits. Therapeutic products contain active ingredients, such as chlorhexidine or fluoride, which do offer benefits for oral health. Chlorhexidine helps reduce the effects of gingivitis, or gum inflammation, and plaque buildup, while fluoride lowers the risk of tooth decay. Some products also have peroxide, which serves as a teeth whitening ingredient. Cosmetic mouthwashes are available over-the-counter, while therapeutic products are available over-the-counter and with a prescription, depending on the ingredients they contain.

Exposing under the sun

Do I get whiter teeth exposing for hours your face under the sun? sunsUV light does not whiten your teeth. That means that no matter how much smiling you do on a sunny day, your teeth won’t get any whiter – and any whitening you notice will probably be the effect of getting a tan, but that has its own risks. You can get a contrast between white teeth and dark tan skin gaining one shade lighter.
